Storyline

A husband and wife think they have made the move of a lifetime when they buy a house in a quiet leafy town. At first it appears to be perfect because there is no noise, no crime and no action especially from the male fraternity of the town. Is this just a bizarre place or is there something sinister going on? Written by Scott Dawson <sdawson@easynet.co.uk>

Dumb attempt at update
1 September 1999 | by (anywhere, USA) – See all my reviews

Not as believable or relevant as the first, with wooden acting and a finale that suggests the writer just got bored and did his best to wrap it up quickly so he could go to lunch. The "turnabout is fair play" tactic could have been handled intelligently, but this is not that movie. For die-hard stepford fans only. For others, stick to the original and the "revenge" sequel.
